Twelve Days of Mother Love: December 7

Artists for hundreds, even thousands, of years
have attempted to capture the essence of Mary.

This portrayal seeks to picture Mary
as Queen of the Heavens, with rich brocades and lace
and a crown too heavy to be worn by a human being.

I suspect that Mary would be embarrassed by images 
that show her in extravagant clothing and jewels.

She was, after all, an unspoiled girl
who answered a call that would change her life
in ways she couldn't begin to imagine.
She said yes, trusting that her path would be revealed 
and her feet would be steady upon it.

We should all be so obedient when the call to our destiny comes.

Being obedient to the call isn't always easy, is it?
The most difficult thing to do for sure.
This is a beautiful picture. Someone was trying to heap Mary with their love the only way they knew how.

Gillena -- the image is one of my Polyvore creations in times gone by. When you can't find something, create it!

Absolutely lovely. I couldn't agree more that as human beings we portray her in her opulent clothing, accessories and jewelry because that's all we know how to do to make sure there is no mistake that she is supreme royalty. I'm just finishing Netflix's series "The Crown" and for some reason, I'm thinking of Queen Elizabeth today who periodically is forced to dress opulently.

Of course Mary deserves the finest that we on earth could imagine. However her true magnificent beauty shines from her heart.
